An underwater performance at the open sea of Ag. Anna, at Marianna wreck, a cargo ship sank on 1981 after crashing on to a reef.
The performance will come as a symbolic statement, underlying the great attraction value of the hidden Aegean underwater monuments, as another alternative of mild cultural touristic development.
Underwater performance by Sofia Touboura and Aimy Palogiannidou`
Concept: Sofia Touboura
With the gentle support of Blue Fin Divers scuba diving center at Agios Prokopios.
Αugust 17, 10:30 am.
An underwater sculpture installation at the seabed of Ag. Prokopios, at the side of the rocks where landforms and fauna become very interesting.
The sculptures resemble coral forms and are made out of concrete.
The public installation is a symbolic statement in favor of the public nature of the foreshore.
Concrete, although non toxic as a material, is because of its abuse perceived as linked to a misconceived, environmentally and aesthetically destructive development. This alternative artistic use of concrete was thus selected as a symbolic counter, as a reference to the option of a positive, gentle and harmonious development of coastal life and activities, and by extension a harmonious coexistence of nature and human culture.
Sculptures will be visible by snorkeling from above and scuba diving from all angles.
Τhey will remain exhibited in the seabed of Agios Prokopios, in public view.
